Great course, the content is interesting.\n\nThe teachers are doing a great job at explaining the various grammar points.\n\nI feel that my Chinese has improved quite a lot thanks to this course.
Even Though I have a grounding in Chinese, but I found this course benefit me a lot. I have work very hard and managed to complete HSK 3 part I in short time and I will go for harder level.

The Chinese HSK3 Part I is a very good course. I would take it again and I would recommend to others. I really enjoyed the teacher's lessons.
I will explain why I gave 4/5 stars:
1) DIALOGUE (Quality of audio). Similar to other Chinese courses here at Coursera, the audio quality of the dialogue is not the best. There is background and static audio noise. Raising the volume makes it even harder to listen. Some dialogues are better than others.
2) DIALOGUE (Speed). Some of the dialogues were not at all useful to me as the speed of the speakers was extremely fast. I visit China often and I can say that most people won;t speak as fast as some of these dialogues. Again, some dialogues were better than others.
3) Week 7 FINAL Test - It is insanely hard compared to the daily/weekly quizzes. I did well in the quizzes (most with 100% scores on first trial). By the time I got to the final, I thought I was going to do really well. Was I wrong! There are two reasons why I found the final to be so difficult. (i) the Listening Part is really really hard. I couldn't understand most of it in the first trial. Maybe something to do with the fact that I didn't get much out of the class dialogues (as described above). (ii) In order to do well in the final, you have to read Hanzi really well. I wish the class had Hanzi lectures and quizzes.

there were some mistakes in the material but the course overall was exactly what I was looking for, thank you for giving me the opportunity to pass this course and to get even closer to my goal of acquiring the chinese language. The course was rather fast-paced and informative, unlike many other courses I finally was very satisfied with the introduction of grammar patterns and clear explanation of sentence order. This was a very good point in all the previous courses in this specialization as well. Cheers to the teachers and the university, as well as a massive thank you to the Coursera team, for making this kinds of professional and informative courses. 谢谢你们。我这个课堂很满意。我已经学习太多。现在我会写子，认识汉字，不但读很清楚， 而且听懂， 和说话普通话。我会学校最多的中文。太谢谢你们。(My chinese is not perfect (yet) but you have encouraged me to improve it even further, and keep reaching higher levels, and pursue bigger heights in my language learning journey)

Great structure behind teaching new topics and vocabulary which increases in using in following topics. So you are continuously seeing the new vocabulary and grammar points which helps a lot with learning it.
Unfortunately there are several mistakes in the videos later on. If you are studying constantly you will recognize them by yourself and will be able to correct them by yourself. Anyway it might distract and infact some students.
But I definitely enjoyed studying with coursera and will definitely continue to. Its an awesome platform to gain new knowledge.

The learning structure is quite good, covering most of the material needed to succeed on the exam; however, there were some audio issues in most of the videos, specifically on the dialogue part, making it difficult to understand sometimes. Exercises are too simple, so any more rigorous exercises to solidify better the material learned will be pretty much welcome :)

Thank you for such a good course! I have learned so much from this. Anyway, there are some typos for pinyin during Week4-6 classes (sorry, can't remember exactly which classes they are). Beginners should recheck the pinyin. (Pleco app is recommended!)

The audio quality is generally good, but patchy at times. I think it could be improved. Please also be sure that the word lists for each session are correct. I think Week 5, lesson one did not match the content.

I really love the teaching methodology used by |Peking University for teaching Chinese. This is my third course from Peking university. I would recommend this course to beginners.

Intensive and fast-paced. Very useful course and the professors are easy to understand. It would be nicer if there are more variety of exercises.

Needs to edit the final exam. It's not easy to go back and forth with the choices and answer sheet. It could have been made more convenient.
por David G•
Great course but there are a few mistakes on some slides. Also feels like we never learned some words that are in the week 7 final.
por Nur R R•
A clearer space to ask questions to the teaches would be a good addition to the course. But overall really good.
